What is an Audio Tour?

An audio tour is a digital guide that offers visitors a narrated journey through a museum, gallery, or historic site, providing detailed insights into its exhibits, architecture, and history. 

Equipped with headphones and a device, such as a smartphone or a provided player, guests can explore at their own pace, selecting topics that interest them most.
